He lamented that the song hit over 1M streams, equating to around R80K, which would provide him with much financial relief as a struggling student with no NSFAS backing.
Meanwhile, Jub Jub receives royalties for the song and has blocked Zethembe on all social media platforms. He says he regrets trusting him instead of signing a contract.

@Icarus_Greek felt frustrated:
“How many times do artists need to learn that you never start work without a contract even when the vibes feel nice?”

“@official_jubjub do what’s right bro, what happened to your ubuntu?”
“Oh this is so sad, but Jub Jub is not a nice person. He didn’t pay the guy who bought his suit on ‘Ngokhole’.”
